debating lociely has been holding a
aerie of Saturday night meetings in the
achool hoose at Milan during tbe fall and
winter which bare been productive of
Interest, instruction and pleasure, topics
pertaining to national, political and
common interest having been taken up
discussed, digested and disposed of
Laat Saturday night's meeting was un
usually interesting a& tbe subject of de
bste was one appealing particularly to
local interest. The question was: "Re
-lved. that the national capital should
be removed from Washington west
ward." The affirmative was led by Mr.
T. J. Medlll. Jr., of this city, assisted by
Mr. .Toa. Fitipatruk aod Mrs. 0. S.
Thompson, of Milan, and the negative
aide or the question was represented by
Prof. J. . Gamble, of Geneseo, now
principal of the Milan school, assisted by
Mr. W. Morehead and Miss L- Brown
The leader in the affirmative stated
that as he understood the question, he
was allowed to locate the site for the
capital any place west of its present )u
cation, and after having carefully con
i lered tbe advantages of the different
Cities throughout the west, had decided
to locate it at Rock Inland. First, be
cause It was posscsxed of all the natural
advantages necessary for a capital city
S?cond, the security of its position, being
under the protection of Rock Island
arsenal, the greatest in the world. Also
its distance from the boundary lints of
the republic were sur-h that no invading
army could ever reach it, or could it ever be
taken by surprise as was Washington in
1814, or would it ever 1 in imminent
danger of capture as was Washington at
the first battle of Bull Run when the con
federates, had tbey been as well schooled
in the art of WHr as they were afterward,
could have easily captured it. Third.
Tbe ftct of its titling near the geographi
cal center of the United States; also the
expectation of its being at the center of
population when the census of 1890 is
taken. The affirmative brought out
many more strong points, among which
were tbe following: Rock Island's posi
tion on the Mississippi river, the great
highway from north to south; its location
at the terminus of the "proposed Henne
pin canal," which, when built, would
give a direct water course from the Mis
aissippi to New York harbor. Its cen
tral position among a cluster of great
cities growing up around us, which will
oon become important factors in legisla
tion; tbe convenience to congressmen,
senators and the army officeholders as to
its central position. The immense local
advantage to be derived from its location
here and many other points. The un
fairness of its prrseut location; tbe dan
ger of its records in case of war; its close
proximity to Wa'l street barons and great
money centers; and the healthy legisla
tion we mii;tit expect if it was moved out
into our broad prairies and fertile soil,
The negatives claimed there waa no
immediate reason for moving the capita'!,
tnat us location should be near the sea
coast, and that the history of any count
try which had caused iu capital to be
removea, snoweu it was moved rrom an
iniana towii to ttie sea coast; that as a
rule, an inland town was more easily
Ciptured than a town on the coast. They
claimed it was inconsistent to move it to
Kock Island; that Hock Iiland was not
adapted for it. Also tbe immense
cost of moving it and the great loss oc
caaioned by leaving the buildings erect
ed; that if we ii.oved it to Rock Island,
it would only be a few years before tbey
would want it farther westward. The
negative also accused the affirmative of
taking advantage in locating it at Rock
Island, as such was not anticipated. Af
ter the question had been closely contest
ed by both sides, the judges gave a de
cision in favor of the affirmative.
It was decided to locate the site of tbe
capital upon the high prominence in Mr.
Bailey Davenport's pasture at the bead
of Twentieth street, commonly known as
The I'aaeaeoaalile Weather.
There is an old weather proverb that a
winter coming in like a lamb is sure to
go out like a defeated candidate, so we
may reasonably expect installments of tbe
present ice-laden zephyrs. But they
come too late, for the mild winter has
played havoc with business. It is not
only so in this locality, but it is so in tbe
sun-blessed climes of California and
Florida, where mild winters are the rule.
The California newspapers report the
dullest winter season ever known in that
salubrious climate. The mildness of the
weather in tbe eastern and northern
states has checked the tide of travel, and
California and Florida are without visit
ors. In communities whose population
live on fish and strangers, it is easy to
imagine what a drawback tbe mild win
ter has been.' The eastern cities corns
plain of the falling off in the winter job
bing trade. The wholesale stock of ar
ticles laid in for winter use are not in de
mand. To the Creditor) of Wllllaaa Raaaokltl
Notice is hereby given that William
Ramakill, of tbe city of Rock Island,
county of Rock Island, state of Illinois,
did on the 17th day of December, 1888,
make an assignment to me of his estate,
to pay debts for the benefit of his credit
ors, that I have this day qualified as such
assignee in tbe county court of said
county. The aboye named creditors will
therefore present their claims against
said Ramskill to me under oath or affir
mation, within three months from this
date as required by law.

An amendment to the constitution to
proDtoit the manufacture and sale of liq
uors as a beverage in Pennsylvania will
be submitted to the voters of that state in
June. Tbe canvass has already opened
and promises to be one of ere at earnest
ness and considerable bitterness, with the
result close and doubtful. The PhiladeN
phia Prett has made a complete and
thorough canvass of the state to ascertain
as nearly as possible what th decision
will be. From this canvass it appears
that ."the country is likely to vote for
prohibition and tbe cities against it. In
other words, if the prohibition amend
meat is to be defeated, the cities will have
to return such large majorities against it
that they will swallow up tbe majorities
given for it in the country." This poll
was non-partisan and included leaders of
both the republican and democratic par
ties, besides tbe members of tbe legisla
ture. It may be therefore considered as
a fair forecast. Tbe Philadelphia Timet
presents the points of contest in this disi
"The issue is a very crave one. It in
volves sentiment, society and interest,
and it Is one that should be most dispas
sionately considered by every voter. If
it were a mere question of effacing the
admitted evils which result from the
liquor traffic, the issue would be a very
plain and simple one; but it brings up
for sober consideration the practical
questions of the best methods of protect
ing society and of the protection due to
property. As a sentimental icstie it has
but one side to it; as a moral issue look
ing to the sanctity and enforcement of
law and as a practical iu looking to
the right of property, it is many sided
It would be a one si led sentimental issue
to demand that all men and women
should be n liKious; but it would be mb
yersive of bo'h law and morals to make
such a mandate from the sovereign
power, because it would fail in enforce
ment and bring both law and religion
There are still more practical questions
involved, which affect a number of states
other tbaa Pennsylvania, where the liq
our problem has come to the front and is
forcing itself on public notica. In a
state like Pennsylvania, with a city pop
ulation aggregating h million and a half
or two mti'ions, will liquor Selling, in
temperance and crime be lesened by a
prohibition system to a greater extent
than under the restrictions and regulation
of a license system, where the seller is
held to rigiil accountability? This is one
forceful query. Still another Is whether
or not a law that works inaifferen'ly in
agricultural states like Kansas and Iowa.
ill answer well for states like New
York. Pennsylvania and Ohio vrhih
teem with urban population? In New
York these questions have been answered
by the domination of license sentiment,
and Pennsylvania's derision will be
awaited with vital interest.
